Coral Springs man accused of plowing through crowd outside strip club


At closing time in the wee hours of Saturday morning in the parking lot of the Brass Flamingo Adult Cabaret in New Port Richey, a dancer said a man screamed at her then kicked and spat on the car she was getting into, reports the Tampa Bay Times in St. Petersburg.

The dispersing crowd of about 50, some loyal club customers, then turned on the man, later identified as 19-year-old Gino Alfred Dattile, of Coral Springs, as he slipped into a Honda Civic, according to the report.

Dattile then drove away before turning the car around, speeding up and plowing through the crowd, sending at least four people to a hospital, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

Dattile was charged with Aggravated Battery (3 counts); DUI and DUI Damage to property of Person (3 counts), inmate records show.
